About Tooth Extractions

Welcome to Affordable Dentist Near Me – Fort Worth. We are experienced specialists in all phases of general and cosmetic dentistry. If you have a tooth that is trying to come out but can’t because of a variety of reasons, you can opt for tooth extraction. The most commonly used tooth extraction is for wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth usually push the last molar in the line forward till it has enough space to emerge. If the jaw does not have enough space to accommodate all the teeth, the wisdom teeth will need to be extracted so it doesn’t damage the existing teeth. It is not a complicated process and can be completed in a single sitting. Your dental care professional can treat some other dental health condition you might be facing before performing the extraction. This is done so that the process does not affect or aggravate any underlying condition.

When should a tooth be extracted?

There are several reasons why your dental care professional will recommend a tooth extraction. Your dental health will first be examined thoroughly examined and tests conducted to ensure that extraction is the best course of action.

  1. If the tooth has experienced too much decay and can no longer be fixed.
  2. If the tooth has become infected and the infection has killed the tooth or damaged the bone surrounding the tooth.
  3. You might have a small mouth and the teeth are too crowded. Crowded teeth can be fixed with braces unless too heavily misaligned.
  4. You have a tooth that is trying to come up but cannot because it is impacted. If your tooth comes up partially but doesn’t have room to finish the process, the gap in your gum can get full of bacteria, causing an infection that hurts your jawbone, gums, and nearby teeth.

The dentist will review your medical and dental history and then conduct x-rays to see the tooth or wisdom teeth more clearly. He will examine the shape, size, length, and position of the tooth and will analyze how that tooth affects the surrounding teeth. In some cases, x-rays can show that a tooth will be very difficult to remove. In this case an oral surgeon is the best candidate for the job.
